Imagine using the situation Kerri Strug sitiation as an example of what someone should do. Besides, we all know that probably all these people who are hating on Simone Biles and using Kerri Strug as part of their argument would be incapable of even walking without limping when they had a broken...
I feel bad for Jade Carey on vault, she could have done so well. Nerves are a bitch. Congrats to MyKayla Skinner though, it must feel good to go from not competing to being a silver medalist. And of course congrats to Andrade for her gold, it was deserved.

I think it's kind of stupid having 3 vaulters and...

@Tickita I assume you're watching?
I was originally a skeptic because I felt that cheerleading was too dominated by one country (the USA), but it turns out that there's over 70 countries who participated at the World Championships in 2019. However, there's still a couple points I feel like make me unsure of whether it should be...
ok, so I actually know it's Eric but I wanted a catchy headline.
Anyways, I feel like the dude pops up everywhere and anywhere. Eric is out there making the fullest of his life and i'm jelly
If anyone is curious he served as the Olympic ambassador so that's one reason he was there. Also, an...
